Can anyone give me any type of diagnosis of this??? I have had a thin line that is extremely painful show up on the back of my left calf. It has been there for about 3 to 4 months. I remember this area became extremely swollen and hot to the touch about 4 months ago. I just thought it was a bad black and blue from banging it at some point. I never did have trauma to this area. The calf is extremely sensitive to touch and hurts like the dickens at times. I have had an ultrasound of the area for a blood clot but it was negative. I am seeing a Vascular surgeon on Thursday for what I am thinking is a DVT or Superficial. Just recently my left foot was extremely painful to walk particularly the inner part of foot - applying pressure. It looked bluish in color. I have also been hacking up some bloody saliva. However, this has been going on for almost 2 years. It only happens every once and a while but the last time it occurred (about 1 week ago) it was a fair amount. I am getting a wee-bit nervous about this. Anyone with an idea?

  • I'm going to go with DVT or varicose vein. Definitely good to have it checked out.

  • If you found the problem, I would be interested in knowing what it is. I have that pain for at least 3 months now, just touched the bathtub rim yesterday and nearly went out of my mind. It does not have that awful pain if I place my fingers in the area. I suffered the same pain in the elbow, only to touch aNd the other leg. leg is better and elbow is getting there, not so much pain. I cannot figure this other than it is connected to a nerve issue. Thanks for the help.
